Bella’s life went sideways before she hit her thirteenth birthday. Her father abruptly left her family and left the country. She and her mother fell from the middle class right into poverty. The Wu family threw them a lifeline, and they grabbed it with both hands.
Jake is funny, smart, and rich. His parents think more about their status than their son, so Bella’s love feels like a lifeline. When Jake’s family says she isn’t good enough, their relationship must go underground.
Bella trades her doomed relationship with Jake for an Ivy League education. And she finds a kind of love with Daniel. When Jake comes back for her years later, she has to decide if first love deserves a second chance.

I write crazy, beautiful love stories because I believe storytelling is magic. I love complicated heroines with secrets, strong heroes who fall hard, and a long winding road to happily ever after. When I’m not writing, I love to travel to witness the diverse tapestry of humanity, photograph the beauty of the world, visit museums, and watch live theater. I live in West Hollywood, California ten miles from the nearest airport.
